    But other than that - the legend is bullish.

     

    Well except for the potential 15-20% inflation.

    people forget that the US savings rate has increased recently which has primarily gone into bonds. That should take care of any reduced demand from Japan and China temporarily.

    May?

     

    Currently the Fed (or Treasury, I forget) buying long term obligations from foreigners, so they can buy short term bonds, and still experiencing net reductions outstanding, "may" becomes quite relative.

     

    As in, may-be it will happen in 10 years, or may-be next year.

    Theres a revelation.... Also I dont think the active descriptor here is "MAY" if I had to pick, I would use "WILL".

    so what china and japan are going to buy ? Rubli ?

     

    I think the worries about america public debt are really out the context .
    I believe a lot of economists tell these horrible stories just to have somebody listen to them.

    Author’s reply » and when government handouts stop the savings rate will dip again. Keep in mind since spring 2008 we've had multiple stimulus programs from Bush to Obama, we've had tax reductions, we've had handouts to buy homes and cars.

     

    So yes "savings are going up" because the government is giving us money. Its basically taking money from future generations to increase the savings rate today.

     

    Its a shell game - nothing more.
